Opening Friday (3/30), the Heights Players present The Heiress. Showtimes are 8pm Fridays and Saturdays and 2pm on Sundays. Purchase tickets by calling 718-237-2752 or the Height Players website.
Adapted by Ruth and Augustus Goetz from the Henry James novel, Washington Square, The Heiress is a tale of two families set in Greenwich Village of the 1850s. The play made its Broadway debut in 1947 starring Wendy Hiller and Basil Rathbone. Olivia DeHavilland received a Best Actress Oscar in 1949 for her portrayal of the title role. A major revival was presented in 1995, winning Tony Awards for both Cherry Jones and Frances Sternhagen, as well as Best Revival.
Heights director John Bourne has assembled a stellar cast of Heights Players veterans: Emily DePew joins us for her second season, playing Catherine Sloper, the young, wealthy title character. Ms. DePew previously appeared on our stage as Maggie Cutler in The Man Who Came To Dinner and Mary Warren in The Crucible.
